2024 Canadian Hillman Prize | Hillman Foundation

2024 Canadian Hillman Prize

The call for entries for the 2024 Canadian Hillman Prizes is now closed.

The deadline to enter was January 15, 2024 at 11:59pm.


The Canadian Hillman Prizes honour excellence in journalism in service of the common good. The Hillman Prizes seek out investigative reporting that draws attention to social or economic injustice and leads to meaningful public policy change. We strive to recognize discernment of a significant news story, resourcefulness and courage in reporting, skill in relating the story and the impact of the coverage.

Starting in 2024, the foundation will award three Canadian Hillman Prizes instead of one. The judges will select entries in the following categories: print/digital, broadcast (tv, radio, podcast) and local/community news.  Entries must have been published in Canada in 2023 and have been widely accessible to a Canadian audience. Self-published work is not eligible.

There is no fee to enter. There is no limit to the number of entries one journalist, publication or outlet may enter.

The Canadian Hillman Prize winners will be awarded an honorarium and a certificate at our event to be held in Toronto on Thursday April 4, 2024.
